using pine to log in to news server


I've been able to set up a news server on pine using my regular ISP (where I don't need to login), but I'm having trouble with a news server that requires a log in. I've set up the same news server under KDE using Knode, so my settings appear to be correct. Under pine, I get a message saying "fetching newsgroup list" but then times out almost immediately saying no matching forums. I've used ^T to go to "all newsgroups," but no list is coming up, nor is it trying to fetch the list. I've restarted pine also.

I found the answer to this, btw, for anyone that's curious. Works for smtp also, if one is required to log to an smtp server to send mail. In the news/smtp setup:

nntp.news.server/user=<username>
